Kwiatkoski (concussion) is expected to play Sunday against the Dolphins, according to Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com. Kwiatkoski was a limited participant in both Wednesday and Thursday practices before logging a full session Friday, and as a result, he wasn't included in the final injury report prior to Sunday's matchup against Miami. His prospects of taking the field appear strong after he didn't play in Week 2 against the Steelers.
Kwiatkoski (concussion) will not play in the Raiders' Week 2 matchup with the Steelers, Rachel Gossen of the team's official website reports. Kwiatkoski will need to work his way out of the league's concussion protocols in order to get the green light to return. His absence leaves Divine Deablo as the lone depth available at linebacker for Las Vegas.
Kwiatkoski has mostly handled backup reps throughout the early days of training camp, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports. Kwiatkoski started in all 12 of his appearances for Las Vegas last season, but it appears that the team views him as a reserve option going forward. Though the sixth-year linebacker is coming off the best season of his career, having notched 81 total tackles, he won't be worth fantasy consideration if his snap share diminishes.
Kwiatkoski (undisclosed) and the Raiders have come to terms on a restructured contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The details regarding Kwiatkoski's new contract are not completely clear at this point. He joined the Raiders in 2020 after spending his first four seasons in Chicago and ultimately recorded 77 tackles (49 solo), one sack and one interception across 12 games.
Kwiatkoski was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports. Kwiatkoski was coming off one of his better performances of the season, notching 10 tackles to pace Las Vegas in last week's loss to the Chargers. It's uncertain whether the linebacker has tested positive for COVID or has been found to be a close contact with someone who has, but he'll miss Saturday's clash with Miami in either case. He should be considered questionable to return for the regular-season finale against Denver as well.
